A native of Chicago and now resident of Central New Jersey, I enjoy spending time in Arrowhead Lake with my teenage children, who love to ski & swim, and boyfriend, who – like me – enjoys hiking in some of the spectacular nearby state parks. It's also a great spot for a girls' weekend. I own two properties in Arrowhead Lake and manage a third, and I take great pride in keeping them as clean and comfortable as possible for my guests, as well as my family.

Sally Ladd purchased this cottage in 2009

This home appealed to me because it had great 'bones,' and because the property is heavily treed and feels very private.

The home has lots of beautiful Andersen windows and a patio door, along with a very private rear deck. The house is set back from the road, making it feel secluded. I added recessed lighting in the kitchen and living room in 2011, wallpapered the kitchen while living here as a refugee from Hurricane Sandy (I reside in NJ), and continue to make improvements as the budget allows!

PERFECT! HAD EVERYTHING WE NEEDED

  • 5 of 5
Wow! We had such a great time at your home Sally. The kitchen was fully stocked, plenty of pillows and blankets, and such a comfy clean feeling once we walked in. We loved the firepit that's in the backyard, and loved the fact the trees surrounded us. No complaints at all about your home..You kept in contact with me through email and answered any questions I had quickly. Only thing was the weather, the day we got there rained, the next day was cloudy and the day we had to leave was sunny! We still had fun and enjoyed ourselves But now we know for next time to book in July or August instead of June! Thanks so much Sally for letting us stay at your home. We will look forward to staying again soon maybe in one of your other spacious rentals! Take care

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear the weather didn't cooperate but so glad you enjoyed your time at Arrowhead Lake. FYI, there is a minimum one week stay starting the third week in June until Labor Day and I frequently book July and part of August the prior year, so if you want to come back next summer I suggest you book by January latest.

Thanks for the great review and hope to have you back next year...

WE REALLY ENJOYED VISITING THE POCONOS!

  • 3 of 5
We really loved the deck which backed up to a wooded area. We saw a fox and a bear during our stay. The surrounding area is very quiet and peaceful. We did have a few issues with the booking process, the condition of the home and the overall communication with Sally. The paperwork seemed a bit much compared to our other VRBO experiences. There are fees that you do not learn about upfront such as a main gate fee and bank fees associated with the damage deposit refund. Sally asks that you take off your shoes but the carpet is very dirty. We reported some issues with the home after our arrival and Sally asked us to take pictures and send them to her. I believe it is the owner's responsibility to know the condition of the home. We also had to bring out own sheets and towels. This is something that I have never had to do. We left the home in excellent condition and after about one week, I inquired as to when we would receive our damage deposit refund. Rather than answering a simple question, Sally sent about 7 attachments for me to sift through and find the answer. It took more than two weeks to receive the refund. That is very poor customer service, in my opinion.

Owner's Response: While I always appreciate hearing from guests what could have been done better, there are a few statements made above that require explanation.

First, when you reported the condition issues with the house (broken bath faucet, stain on rug), I offered to have someone come by and fix the bath faucet but you declined. I reported the stain to my cleaning person and it was cleaned it after your stay; I apologize that this went unnoticed. I do have to disagree that the carpet is dirty overall; I shampoo it twice yearly myself and it is vacuumed after every rental. However, it is becoming worn in some areas and I am planning to replace it.

As for the fees, the information on both community and credit card fees is provided both on this website and during the quote and payment process. If you check the original quote I sent you, the fees are listed there, and mention of the bank fees is reiterated just before you make payment. Homeaway deducts the 2.5% fee from all credit card payments and this charge is passed along to the renter. Guests do have the option to pay by eCheck without fees if reserving at least 10 business days in advance.

As for bringing linens and towels, this is something many vacation rentals require. If I provided these I would have to increase the cleaning fee to cover laundry, and I believe most renters prefer to have the choice of bringing or renting these items. As I mention on my website, they can be rented at reasonable cost with free delivery and pickup at poconolinens.com.

I agree with you about the paperwork; however, Arrowhead Lake requires extensive information in order to register renters, and as a homeowner I must protect myself with a signed contract. I assume as a fellow vacation rental owner you require a signed contract as well. I have tried to make this process as easy as possible by providing documents that are completed 100% online.

As for the information on your deposit, this was included with your house instructions. This is the most common question I get from renters, so I send a link to a document with a full explanation, since I want my guests to understand the reasons for delay. However, I did fix the link so that it goes directly to the right document. Thank you for pointing this out.

Again, I do appreciate your feedback and I'm sorry you didn't have the same 4- or 5-star experience as did 48 of the 50 other guests who have reviewed this property. – Sally

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!!

  • 5 of 5
I have only great things to say about Sally, the cottage and the Arrowhead Lake community.

Both the cottage and the Arrowhead Lake community are exactly as Sally describes them in the listing. The house was very comfortable and well-stocked with magazines, movies, kitchen supplies, and cozy blankets. I highly suggest going to the Arrowhead Lake Lodge - it's beautiful!

Sally was absolutely wonderful. She is extremely professional, communicative, always available, and just very kind! She even sent me email updates with various community activities that were going on at the time. The staff at Arrowhead Lake were just as lovely during check-in / check-out.

Sally -
Thanks for a wonderful weekend! It was really nice to get away from the noise and activity of NYC. The cozy house and beautiful surroundings were just what we needed to de-stress and get some much needed rest & relaxation. I'm sure we'll be back!

CUTE LITTLE HOUSE

  • 4 of 5
I rented this house for two nights for a tubing trip my daughter and I took with my friend and her daughter. Because of the heavy snow and our small car we did have some issues with the fact that the roads in the community were not cleaned. We did get stuck but the super nice people we were able to stop helped us out. It took us about twenty minutes to get the door opened because it seemed that the cold affected the alignment and it was just a mess... it ended up not locking the whole trip... thankfully it's a safe community. Having said that the house itself is super cute and perfect for four people. Having to bring our own sheets was a nuisance but we dealt with it... it is tricky to put the sheets on the top bunk so be prepared to work for it. Other than that it was very clean and cozy. We cooked our own dinners and the kids had a blast in the little nook area. The house is very warm and has everything you might need. At first it seemed that the lighting is overall a bit low but we got used to it quickly and it added to the cozy atmosphere. The couch is super comfy and it was awesome lounging after a day of tubing. We had a nice snowball fight in the front yard. This house is perfect for any season and I would love to return. Definitely saving this as one of my favorites as far as smaller more affordable houses go. Sally was always available to answer our questions. Very nice overall experience.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Elina. Unfortunately you visited during an unusually snowy January and the community plowers took some time to get everything cleared — although the road this house is on is one of the few paved backroads, so it's usually one of the first plowed.
I thought we had resolved the issue with the electronic entry on the front door as I had a spare key in the lockbox, and renters coming in after you were able to lock it using the key. However, the weather has definitely caused issues with doors at both my properties which have been difficult to rectify due to the continuing cycles of warming and bitter cold.
As for the lighting, I'm not sure where in the house you found the lighting to be too low. The living room has recessed lighting, which can be dimmed using the wall switch; perhaps it wasn't turned up?
As for sheets (and towels), these can be rented for a very reasonable price from poconolinens.com, with free delivery & pickup. If I were to provide linens & towels I would have to increase the cleaning fee, and I believe most people would prefer to have the option of paying for these items separately or bringing their own.
In any event, I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and you are welcome back anytime!
